Best Way to Dry a Horse Blanket
If you’re bringing in a horse with a soaked blanket your first instinct may be to remove the blanket and hang it up somewhere to dry. This could work if you have a warm or heated tack room or a cool, dry place to hang the blanket. Otherwise, the blanket is simply going to drip and stay wet. No, it won’t drip dry at least not overnight or even over the next 24 hours. So what to do? The answer is simple. Leave the blanket on the horse (as long as the horse is dry underneath). The horse’s natural body heat will eventually dry out the blanket making it completely dry and ready for removal and re-use the next day. If it’s particular cold out then the blanket can be left on. Not only will it dry, but it will also provide that extra layer of warmth. To learn more, speak to your veterinarian Wichita, KS.
